If they don't believe in the afterlife:

1. What's the point?

2. What is the heaven for the 144,000?

In truth they do not believe in hell (see 1 above) and honestly if I knew there were only 144,000 seats at a concert, I'd stop selling tickets and make sure I got in.

They also don't believe in blood transfusions. My main beef besides not allowing birthdays and christmas for the kids is the prohibition on voting, that can't be productive for anyone who wants to remain in a country that CURRENTLY allows freedom of religion. But to each their own I guess. I wonder how many broke their own rules to vote this time.

That reminds me of the time that they came a knockin' and waking my ass up on saturday morning. I was an HOA member and decided to enlighten them on our soliciting policy in the hood. They told me they were not soliciting.

I said, "Are you offering something?" and they said yes. I said, "Do I have to do anything to get it?" and they said yes. Then I said, "Then get the %^#%$ off my lawn before I call the cops" and they left. It was almost as funny as the time I told them I was a satanist, the looks on their faces was classic.

This is not my lawn and they are not chopping heads off so I agree, let them post!

Thanks, and of cause you would understand "An Englishman's home is his castle" and you don't want time wasters like the JW with nothing better to do, than door knocking, knocking on your door. Too bad nobody uses boiling oil any more, to discourage unwanted callers.

BTY, in 50-years time, most likely the only way people will know of the JW, is via the archive. they will be extinct because of their refusal to make use of life extending technology such as blood transfusions etc.

And their beliefs on not using technology, if they don't change, means they wont be able to live in tomorrows world, unless they go and find a spare moon or asteroid somewhere.

Some Star Trek stories cover that idea.

First, I am not a JW -- but one of my sisters is. We go a few rounds on "religion" in general every now and again, and we both learn something in the process. Therefor, I do happen to know about some of the "JW beliefs".

They DO allow the use of computers -- PC, Mac, laptops, everything -- because that is where they do most of their current proselytizing, via their websites; it is where my sister gets most of the dis-information about the non-JW world. They are allowed to vote -- but not encouraged to do so. They may not believe in transfusions of NATURAL human blood -- but they do believe in transfusions of MANUFACTURED blood (it's a new technology, still in its infancy - and it doesn't involve real blood...).

What they seem to ignore is that they also break many of their own rules. I have personally witnessed a JW eat a rare, bloody steak -- ignoring the rule against "consuming blood". I have personally heard a JW use derogatory speech in reference to other people -- ignoring the rule against intolerance. There are so many things I have seen and heard, from and by "high-ranking" JWs, there is not enough room here to list them. The JW religious beliefs are no better -- or worse -- than any other set of religious beliefs, and I happen to disagree with any such beliefs which restrict what a person may see, hear, say, do, think, etc.

HOWEVER.... The words in the upper-right corner of the webpage say "Universal access to human knowledge" -- not "...except for what we don't like". If the JWs want to put their propaganda on the pages of this Archive, let them.

The truly intelligent people of the world will recognize the propaganda for what it is -- and they will then ignore it.

I hate to agree with you but I also know a JW that throws around the N word even though every other JW I ever met was black, they also curse and drink everyday but I beleive you can drink. Shit if you ain't got no birthday presents I would drink too. They are all cults in one way or another.
